There’s news coming out of Turkey today via Haberturk that Fenerbahce are keen to sign Matz Sels from Newcastle.
The Turkish giants want to sign a new goalkeeper this summer to challenge their current veteran goalkeeper and captain Volkan Demirel.
Volkan is 37-year-old and will sign a new deal this summer to stay another year with Fenerbahce.
Demirel has been at Fenerbahce since 2002 and has played 490 times for the club and 63 times for Turkey.
Matz wouldn’t be too happy to sign on for the Turkish giants and then spend time on the bench but there’s an opportunity for him here too.

Sels was close to signing on at Anderlecht but the deal fell through a couple of weeks back when the Belgium club wouldn’t pay the £2.25M fee Newcastle wanted.
Matz has no future at Newcastle after Rafa brought him in for about £5M from Gent two years ago and it’s important for him to link up with some club this summer.
